Exhibition on the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens
Back in January I touched on the Vauxhall Pleasure Gardens in a post on the redevelopment of the Royal Docks as a pleasure gardens for the London Olympics.
Now, an exhibition at the Foundling Museum in London (11 May to 9 September) explores the reasons behind the success of the Gardens over such a long period.
History Today has a sneak preview of some of the images.
